Field Trips to Local Markets
Albertsons grocery chain has launched a new program that offers school kids a field trip to local stores to learn about healthy eating habits. The Albertsons Healthy Eaters™ program was designed to reinforce the nutrition and health curricula taught in schools by taking the children on supermarket tours. Elementary-school children get hands-on instruction in food labels, proper portion sizes, nutrients and how to make good eating decisions. Currently the program is available in eight Western states.
